This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Tyler's plan is to be in side the building as it blows up so he can be a martyr. The building fails to blow up. Tyler only wanted to watch it happen. Project mayhem succeeds in blowing up all the buildings as the Narrator and Marla watch them fall.
   Tyler answers the phone when Marla calls about her suicide attempt. The narrator only learns of this later. The Narrator takes the original call, but does nothing and leaves the phone off the hook. Tyler then comes along and picks it up and listens.
   The narrator beats a man to a bloody pulp because he is envious of his good looks. Angel face is seen as taking the Narrator's place as Tyler's friend, so the narrator freaks out and beats his face to a pulp. He tells Tyler "I felt like destroying something beautiful."
   The narrator goes to a bar with Tyler and asks if he can stay with him. He beats around the bush and Tyler tells him to just ask if he can stay with him.
   The narrator ends up in a mental institution where members of Project mayhem indicate that they are still carrying out the wishes of Tyler Durden. The film ends prior to seeing the outcome. The last shot is of the buildings crashing down. And a giant penis.
